Every summer, as part of Durham County Library’s Summer Reading Program, we celebrate a reader from each of Durham County Library’s locations. This week we’re featuring Justice, a rising high school senior who is 17 years old. Justice enjoys visiting South Regional Library.
Justice’s favorite thing about the library is the computer resources. The books are great, too! Justice recommends Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige, because it’s engaging. When Justice is at the library, he likes to use the computer and read. He’s already learned about solar energy, and now he wants to learn more about animals!
Summer Reading at Durham County Library is free and open to people of all ages. This year’s theme is Libraries Rock! Justice says, “Libraries rock because you have infinite knowledge available!” (We think that’s a pretty great reason to visit!)
We also know that reading stretches the imagination, deepens our capacity to empathize with others, and helps students retain academic gains over the summer months.
Durham County Library encourages reading every day. Babies love books, too! It’s never too early to start reading together. If you haven’t been to South Regional Library, like Justice has, be sure to check it out. They have lots to offer, including “Literary Mixtape,” an opportunity for tweens and teens to create a playlist for their favorite book or literary character! This fun event takes place at South Regional all day, every day, from June 9 through August 11. See you at the library!
